Paris wine show to become permanent fixture

The boards of Vinisud and VinoVision have agreed to create an annual event in Paris under a new umbrella show called ‘Wine Paris’.

The first Wine Paris show is taking place next year from 11-13 February and will return in 2020.

In a release it was explained that the decision to create a new, permanent Paris show was the result of the “enthusiasm shown across the industry both in France and internationally, for the first Wine Paris event”.

The ambition of Comexposium, the exhibition organiser behind both Vinisud and VinoVision, was to create a show that placed Paris on the global wine map, making use of its accessibility, facilities and position as a business and gastronomic hub.

Pierre Clément, chairman of the Cool Climate Wine Association, said: “Our two respective trade fairs have put aside their regional ambitions to prioritise the city of Paris in 2019 and for years to come. Businesses within the wine industry have wholeheartedly expressed support for this project and are defending a common interest in the success of the event.”

Fabrice Rieu, chairman of the Association of Mediterranean Wine Regions, added: “For all the long-standing marketing boards taking part in Vinisud – Languedoc, Pays d’Oc, Roussillon, Rhone Valley, South-West, Provence and Corsica – Wine Paris 2019 is proving to be a real success.

“The trust placed in us by our exhibitors has given us reason to be enthusiastic and to want to ensure the show’s long-term future with a new event in 2020 in Paris, creating a perfect situation for targeting export markets outside the EU which is essential for the development of our wine regions.”

So far over 1,300 exhibitors from France and aboard are signed up to the event and over 25,000 visitors are expected to attend the 2019 show.
